Google Presentation

As predicted, the much anticipated Google PowerPoint clone was launched this week. Just like MS PowerPoint, Google Presentation allows you to create a series of slides with a mixture of text and graphics on each. With Google’s applications you must be connected to the web while Microsoft’s Office programs are installed directly on your PC.
Google Presentations is included in Google’s free software bundle, called “Docs” . which Google will sell a souped-up version to businesses, universities and government agencies for $50 a year per user. .

I’ve lost count of all of these web-based office apps.
Maybe we need a 23 Things Learning 2.0 for all of the web-based free office applications?
They certainly expand our ability to bridge the digital divide without using MS Office on every public access PC….
